Workshops and Classes
Animal Behavior Series
This is a series of classes where participants gain an in-depth
understanding of cat or dog behavior. These classes are geared towards shelter
workers, volunteers and veterinary clinic employees but are available to anyone
who wants a deeper insight into the pets that share our lives.
A dog behavior series and a cat behavior series are offered. Dog topics
include how dogs learn, breed group
characteristics, leadership responsibilities, energy issues, elimination issues,
destruction issues, fears, phobias, separation anxiety, developmental stages of
puppies, housetraining, training tools, dog body language, dog-to-dog
introductions and canine rivalry.
Cat topics include how cats learn, cat
social structures, preventing scratching problems, cat toys, introducing cats to
other animals, solving house-soiling problems, solving scratching problems,
rough play and fearful behavior.
You are welcome to attend any sessions of interest, although they are
intended to be taken as a series. These sessions are for humans only. Your $10
donation at the time of class will help cover time and materials costs. Thank
you in advance for your support.
